Roger's Mum's Rosh Hashana XI

Men In Blazers has amassed three regular listeners. One is my Mum – Mrs. Bennett. And in honor of Jewish New Year, she put together this Rosh Hashana XI. The best soccer team Judaism can offer. I’d love to hear if you think my Mum missed anyone. This squad is to soccer what Team USA has been to the Rugby World Cup, even with Edgar Davids in the Madeleine Albright / creative midfield role. Happy New Year.
